16 Migrants Driven by Rented Jet to California and Abandoned Outside Church

More than a dozen migrants arrived in Sacramento, California, by private plane “without any prior arrangement or care in place,” according to statements made on Saturday by Governor Gavin Newsom and Attorney General Rob Bonta.

The crew, who had papers “purporting to be from the government of the State of Florida,” was met with by California state officials on Saturday, according to Bonta.

The immigrants were transported by private chartered jet from Texas to New Mexico, then to California, where they were “dumped on the doorstep of a local church without any advance warning,” according to a statement from California Governor Gavin Newsom.

The attorney general is looking into the event and “evaluating potential criminal or civil action against those who transported or arranged for the transport of these vulnerable immigrants,” according to a statement from Bonta.

The tweet below verifies the news:

The governor said there would be an investigation into who paid for the group’s travel as well as whether the refugees were given false hope. Authorities withheld the origins of the migrants’ countries of origin.

State representatives from Florida and Texas have been contacted by CNN for comment.

A plane transporting migrants has unexpectedly landed in a Democratic state before. Florida Governor Ron DeSantis flew two planes delivering migrants to Martha’s Vineyard late last year.

In the midst of a humanitarian crisis at the southern US border, Republican governors and municipal politicians have also bused migrants from southern states to New York and other more liberal cities.

Many people travel across difficult terrain to the US in search of a better life for their families. According to experts, people move to seek economic opportunity, escape conflict, or reconcile with loved ones.

Following such a traumatic occurrence, these people will be treated with respect, compassion, and care by California and the Sacramento community, according to Bonta.

In order to ensure that the migrants “are treated with respect and dignity and get to their intended destination as they pursue their immigration cases,” the state is collaborating with the Sacramento mayor’s office and local organizations, according to Newsom.

As the state “continues to gather evidence,” Bonta declared, “I want to be very clear that state-sanctioned kidnapping is not a choice of public policy; it is immoral and repugnant.
